    Gnome Classic (no effects) - 2 issues

    Hi, I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 with Gnome Classic (no effects) and there are 2 very simple issues that I can't deal with:

    1) I cannot install global menu applet. I tried using Synaptic and here it says that this package is broken. When I'm trying to fix it I get back:

    E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
    E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
    E: Unable to correct dependencies
    E: Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
    E: Unable to correct dependencies


    Has anyone faced similar problems with the global menu?

    2) this may sound funny but I have no idea how to adjust icon spacing in the top panel. Has anyone ever wondered how to do it?

    I will appreciate any kind of help. Sorry if I didn't notice any threads that show solutions to these problems.

    Try,

    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get update
    "All right amatuer hour's over. Let me show you why they call me the Velour Fog...."

    thanks for your suggestion, unfortunately I still have the same problem, sudo apt-get update wrote back (after many lines of web addresses):

    Have you added in any specific PPA's outside of the standard?

    You can look here to see about adding the keys for the PPA's that you are using:

    I'd say yes. The error message lists a couple. My guess that it is not that the key is missing, but rather that the PPA is no longer there.

    I would try and figure out what program or packages came from those PPA's and consider removing them. I would probably wait a week or so, just in case the PPA's are having temporary issues, and might reappear in time.

    I have when I was experimenting a bit with my Ubuntu themes etc. Do you think removing all PPA's should fix the issue? I don't think I need any of them right now. I tried using the ppa-purge package but I'm having problems with deleting all PPA's at one time. Help doesn't mention such command although when I launch ppa-purge in Terminal it says:
    ppa-purge will reset all packages from a PPA to the standard
    versions released for your distribution.
